Water Stress Thyroid 3 In 1
I feel 6-7 extrasystols daily. Some during swim or sauna, few in rest. My cardio CT shows healthy heart. Ultrasound showed mitralis prolapsus. I regularly sport. Is this serious ? Need medication ?
Stress affects most people in some way. Acute (sudden, short-term) stress leads to rapid changes throughout the body. Almost all body systems (the heart and blood vessels, immune system, lungs, digestive system, sensory organs, and brain) gear up to meet perceived danger. These stress responses could prove beneficial in a critical, life-or-death situation. Over time, however, repeated stressful situations put a strain on the body that may contribute to physical and psychological problems. Chronic (long-term) stress can have real health consequences and should be addressed like any other health concern. Fortunately, research is showing that lifestyle changes and stress-reduction techniques can help people learn ...Read more

What does this indicate a pco2 arterial of 24, pH 7.49, co2 whole blood 18.8, o2 sat. 98.4 all from a blood gas
Lab data: The pc02 is low suggesting that you are blowing off carbon dioxide at an excessive rate, perhaps from hyperventilation. The p02 is normal, and the the total c02 is the sum of hco3? and pco2 by the formula: tco2 = [hco3?] + ?*pco2, where ?=0.226 mm/kpa, hco3? is expressed in millimolar concentration (mm) (mmol/l) and pco2 is expressed in kpa. 18.8 is low.

I'm 21. Which medication is more proper for ovarian cysts(5-8mm. No free fluid) in both ovaries- homeopathy or allopathy ?
Medical systems: Homeopathy and allopathy are systems of medicine, not medications in themselves. Allopathy means "other suffering" -- and refers to using treatments that cause effects different from those of the disease being treated. Homeopathy = "similar suffering" -- and uses minute quantities of medicines that would produce in a healthy person, symptoms similar to those of the disease. Please see comment. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Help docs! i'm trying to find out what causes rapid & significant changes in blood pressure (min 50/40, max 230/180)?
Measure errors: In the absence of major trauma with major shifts in blood volume, or rare illnesses like pheochromocytoma or wildly labile autonomic dysfunction, errors in BP measurement are likely the most likely mechanism for such wildly disparate readings, especially if unaccompanied by major symtoms. The fact that you're writing to ask likely precludes the latter. Talk to your doc or calibrate your BP cuff. ...Read more

Resect if possible: Liver metastases are an unfortunate consequence of some cancers. Sometimes they are can be removed with surgery if the patient can tolerate it. Many times surgery is not possible, so patients need to take chemotherapy. Chemotherapy would be chosen depending on the original cancer. Combinations of surgical removal and chemotherapy have led to long prognosis in colorectal cancer, for example. ...Read more

Endocrinologist says my thyroid 2 low. Tsh-3gen 6.30 FTI 2.4 TotT4 8.8 T-uptake 27.8 wants to increase meds. I have no T gland. No symp. What's low?
Thyroid hormone.: We all need thyroid hormones for proper health. If you had your thyroid removed, you will have to take thyroid replacement meds for the rest of your life. If you are taking them, the level has to be monitored to be sure you are getting enough for your body to function normally. If your level is low, the medicine is increased and the level is rechecked regularly to make sure it is stays normal ...Read more
recently diagnosed with MTHFR C677T, have B12 >2000 and high WBC and BP has gone from 90 over 70 to 120 over 78. Chaned diet to Paleo still in pain?
I'd take it easy: Up to 20% of folks in many communities have C677T allele. There's talk of it being a risk for this-or-that but this looks to me like just statistician junk. High B12's are never a concern in the absence of obvious myeloproliferative disease; are all you WBC's normal? is there any sign of polycythemia? BP fluctuates wildly; be thankful yours is normal. Look elsewhere for cause / help with your pain ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
